I’m leaving OEP after a wonderful year of working here! I have had so much fun at our different events, Green Gamedays, Campus Sustainability Day, Earth Day Spring Fling! My favorite part about this job is all of the wonderful people I got to work with. Working with our immensely talented and hardworking student interns has been a privilege. I wish all of them, especially our recent graduates, Andy, Eric, and Katie, good luck in the future! It was also wonderful to learn more about how sustainability works at UConn, and the number of really amazing initiatives we have that help UConn be more sustainable. I will be leaving the OEP in the very capable hands of our new Sustainability Coordinator, Sarah Munro and Eric Grulke, our former intern, who will be re-joining the OEP as the assistant sustainability coordinator as he begins his graduate degree in Engineering. I can’t wait to see what the interns will do next year! I will be spending the next year finishing my dissertation on the institutionalization of the right to water, so I will gone, but not away from campus, and I plan to check in every so often to say hi!
All the best,
